When Andhra State was formed in October 1953, the government of Andhra decided to start a medical college in the Rayalaseema region of the state. In G.O. Ms. No. 1835, Health, dated 29th November 1955, the government of Andhra passed orders to establish a medical college, the third one in the state at Kurnool. As the building was not ready for locating this college the government decided to admit 50 students intended for Kurnool Medical College at Guntur in July 1956. When Andhra Pradesh was formed and the capital was shifted to Hyderabad from Kurnool the erstwhile secretariat buildings were handedover to medical college.

The college was opened on 21st July 1957 by Sri T.T. Krishnamachari, the then finance minister, government of India. 50 students were admitted to the M.B.B.S. course.

Laboratories for subjects of the non-clinical course were established in due course. The construction of a “clinical lecture hall cum clinical pathology laboratory” in the hospital and the construction of an air conditioned mortuary for 24 dead bodies were undertaken latter and these buildings were ready by the summer of 1958.

New out patient block of the Government General Hospital, Kurnool which is the associated teaching hospital was constructed at a cost of Rs. 9 Lakhs and the inauguration of this and the clinical courses was performed on 28th January 1958 by Sri D.K. Karmankar, the Health Minister, government of India. The first batch of second M.B.B.S. students from the batch of 50 students originally admitted to Guntur Medical College in July 1956 now joined this college for their clinical courses. The first units in the major subjects of Medicine, Surgery and Midwifery were created in July 1957.

The Kurnool Medical College was first affiliated to Sri Venkateswara University, from January 1957 and permanently affiliated from January1959. This college later affiliated to N.T.R. University of Health Sciences 1986.

The NCC unit attached to the college was started in January, 1958 Laboratory technician’s courses and laboratory attender’s courses were started in October 1958. In the same year, the Government also established at this college, a Regional Laboratory to serve the needs of Rayalaseema districts.
A well planned Animal House with separate units for different laboratory animals was built and commissioned for use in 1961. A Central work shop started functioning from 1964.

The legislators hostel, which was very close to, the college was given for locating the men’s hostel during 1958 and it accommodated 175 students. Further expansion of this hostel was made to accommodate 350 students in all.
